Customer Comments

Just a note to say a huge THANK YOU to you and your crew. During my ‘holiday of a life time’ your crew were amazing in every aspect of the trip. The whole crew ensured our high expectations were met and some.

—Lyn Williams, March 2019

Thank you all so very much for the trip of a lifetime. I had been dreaming of being able to join the Searcher on one of the whale-watching trips since we first found out about it, 9 or 10 years ago. When you build up something for such a long time, there is danger that it doesn’t meet up to hopes and expectations. Yet this trip, together with the fantastic crew, the amazing food, wealth of knowledge, organization and care taken over the whole experience was beyond anything we could ever hope for. Everyone worked so hard at everything and I don’t know how they were able to spot animals at such a distance. It was a privilege to be able to be on the same boat as all of them.

—Claire and Michael Sansom, March 2019

Just a note to say how wonderful, in fact magical, was my recent trip on Searcher. The entire voyage was a wonderful introduction to Baja and the Sea of Cortez. It was indeed a privilege to be part of such a wonderful wilderness.

—Charlotte Kennedy, March 2019

Thank you, Celia, for your excellent organization of another trip of a lifetime. It was wonderful.

Thank you, Marc and Paul, for this detailed summary and comprehensive lists of all we saw. Happy memories of a beautiful holiday.

The journey of the Searcher was, as always, stupendous! I am always left with a feeling of awe at the incredible beauty of the place and all the creatures who live there and so very thankful to Art for making it possible for me to be a part of it for a short time. Baja is a very special place and I am so lucky to have found it, thanks to you and Art.
